Thanks to everyone who braved the cold weather today to attend quilting. It was fabulous to see people return their appliqué homework they took last week for our Raffle quilt.
Jane has had a busy week with Little Wonder RPA requesting 40 baby quilts and Bear Cottage at Manly happy to receive quilts. We have organised the 40 baby quilts and 4 cot quilts and 4 single bed size quilts to be delivered next week.
Bear Cottage would also like quilts for boys/ teenagers if you have some spare time.
World Prematurity Day November 17 is our next batch of 40 baby quilts for Little Wonder RPA. If you are looking for a quicker project to do the baby quilt should have a hint of purple in the fabric. We have approximately 20 quilts made and set aside.
In 2 weeks we are having a visit from Krystiana from RizeUp Australia who is coming to speak to us about how they help victims of domestic violence in the Sydney area. We are considering this charity to donate money raised from our Quilt Show in 2024.

Thanks to Grace for her motivation and encouragement as we continue to develop our Raffle Quilt today. It is really coming together and stimulates conversations among our members as they cut, stitch and add completed work to the design wall.

Our Community Day saw the start of our raffle quilt with cutting boards, rotary cutters and irons ready to start after our designer and coordinator Kathy gave us the rundown and plan for the day. We set up 5 work stations piecing triangles into squares, wedge rulers were used to create 7” circles, making straight fabric bend for branches and cutting leaves, flowers for appliqué work.
Thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly, we achieved a great deal today and look forward to continuing it all again next week.
